George Frideric Handel: Messiah

Sponsored by

Handel’s Messiah is a magnificent, electrifying masterpiece, and a highlight of the Christmas season for millions around the world every year. Now, experience the beauty and joy of Handel’s great oratorio with the acclaimed Canadian bassoonist/conductor Mathieu Lussier, who’s earned raves from Halifax audiences for his exciting conducting, stellar musicianship, and “energy, enthusiasm, humour, and talent.” Together with four guest vocal soloists and the 80-voice Symphony Chorus, Mathieu and Symphony Nova Scotia proudly present an energetic, uplifting interpretation of Handel’s glorious holiday favourite.

"Performed with superb attack, crispness, and all the dazzle and pomp of the Sun King’s court."

–Ottawa Sun, on Mathieu Lussier
